Effects of the selective lesions of cholinergic septohippocampal neurons on different forms of memory and learning process.

Dashniani MG, Beseliia GV, Maglakelidze GA, Burdzhanadze MA, Chkhikvishvili N (2009) Effects of the selective lesions of cholinergic septohippocampal neurons on different forms of memory and learning process. Georgian Med News 166:81-85.

Summary: The hippocampus is crucial for the ability to recollect everyday events and factual knowledge. Here the authors looked at the role of the septo-hippocampal cholinergic system of the medial septum in learning and memory. Rats received 200 ng injections of 192-IgG-SAP (Cat. #IT-01) into the medial septum. Mouse IgG-SAP (Cat. #IT-18) was used as a control. The data suggest that although the septo-hippocampal region is essential for spatial learning, hippocampal acetyl cholinesterase may not be essential for all types of hippocampal-dependent memory.
